THE TIMBER STOWER

CAPTAIN EZEKIEL MUNRO, Nova Scotian ship-master, swore that managing daughter Dorothy was more of a task than putting a hard-bitten crowd of sailor-johns through their paces. And that was saying a lot. When Dot went to sea with him, impressionable second mates lost needful sleep in their watches below, and young sprigs of foremast hands washed their faces and became abstracted at times when such was a serious ship-board crime.
THOROUGHBRED 1819

THOROUGHBRED

PARK AVENUE is the least dramatic of the thoroughfares that run like longitudinal wires through the giant gridiron which is upper New York. It lacks the incandescent glam our of Broadway, the sordidness and color of the lower East Side, the fly-specked secre tiveness of Sixth and Eighth Avenues, the splendor and commercialism of Fifth.

THE SNOWY EGRET

COSGRAVE, as a Canadian, was a lover of the open. Yet there were times, after coming down from his secluded Lake Trevor retreat to the forested steel and stone of New York, when Fifth Avenue could unroll so appeasingly panoramic before him that he found himself willing enough to exchange its odors of exhaustive fumes for his lost aroma of northern balsam.

SISTER STUFF

MAIDIE KNOWLES could never quite make out Delphine. If she had, friendship might not have been on such an entirely satisfactory basis. Delphine shared a room; worked in the same departmental store book section; received insufficient nourishment often at the same eating houses, and yet— “Like the time I went with Harry to fetch his weekly from the Chink's, and his best soup-and-fish underwear was missin', and about a dozen yellow men started to jabber away together: that’s about how much I understand that kid sometimes.

CLIFFORD ROWAN spun round and round in his swivel chair. The courier staff knew that when their city editor acted in this way there was "something up" He had done it when the opposition paper had stolen his political "dark horse"; he had done it when one of his men had broken faith with a confidant; he had done it,but a few days ago,when his star police reporter had been orderd by his doctor to give up newspaper work for good; he was doing it now, so vieiously that the swivel squeaked with friction and the chair jumped from the floor with successive swing.

SOUVENIRS

SUCH persons as never drift into the eddies and back currents of city life could scarcely be expected to know “Polly” Dawson. But in underground gambling resorts, the camouflaged poolrooms where racing news is distributed to the elect and even in certain clubs where “quiet games” for attractive stakes take place his tall, loose-knit figure, his cynical mask of a face with the long, drooping, parrot-like nose from which he gained the soubriquet “Polly”— his heavy-lidded eyes and drawling voice are known from Montreal to Vancouver.

WILL mothers of the world be the next group to form a union? Will they go on strike and refuse to bear children unless assured that when the boys become grown men they will not be sacrificed in battle? Is this the method that eventually will bring about universal peace?

FOOD FACTS WE SHOULD KNOW

THE preserving season in all the fury of its heat is upon us. The temptation is to eat raw the fruit and vegetables that are in season and leave the fresh food question of next winter to take rare of itself. But the stodginess of winter diet without the refreshing variety of canned fruit does not present a pleasing prospect.

BUYING IS PROCEEDING CAUTIOUSLY; WAITING FOR RESULTS FROM HARVEST

AT THE present writing there seems no question but that the western grain crop, on which the general prosperity of this country is based, is an assured success. There seems little doubt now but that the crop will be not only a record one, but that the quality will be high.
